Electric Underfloor Heating Kit

Configure your own underfloor heating kit.

Simply select your required mats, insulation, thermostat and sundries then add them to your basket to checkout.

Tips

  • For installation under laminate, engineered board, vinyl or carpet use 'Therm-All' insulation which is sold by the m2
  • For installation under tile, stone or slate use 'EasyHeat' insulation boards, each board is 600mm x 1200mm
  • For installation in a 'wet' area such as a kitchen, bathroom or wetroom we recommend you also purchase our grounding kit (sundries)
  • Mats should not overlap and they cannot be cut

How to Buy Your Underfloor Heating Kit

Working Out How Many Mats You Need

First of all make sure you have measured the area for your underfloor heating correctly. Our mats come in widths of 1m and .5m and various lengths. You need to lay your mats out side by side, make sure they don't overlap and remember they can't be cut. You should be aiming for about 80% coverage of your floor area in order for the underfloor heating to work as your primary heat source.
How to Layout Underfloor Heating Mats
Here are a few tips in choosing the correct size mats;
  • 1m wide mats come in lengths up to 3.5m
  • .5m wide mats come in lengths up to 7m
  • Examples
    • For a 3.5m x 4m room you could use 3 1m x 3m mats side by side
    • For a 5m x 3m room you could use 5 .5m x 4.5m mats side by side
  • The mats have 2 electric cables at one end, these connect to your fused spur
  • For larger areas consider using 2 thermostats at either end of the room
    • this will give better heating control where solar gain is apparent
    • it also makes connecting the mats to your fused spurs easier
You do not need to install underfloor heating underneath kitchen units or areas where you will be using fitted furniture.

Choose Your Mats

Taking into account the points above, select the mats sizes and quantities required. Section 1 contains all the 1m wide mats, Section 2 contacts all the .5m wide mats.

Insulation

The insulation is laid underneath your heating mats. Insulation needs to cover the entire floor area where your flooring is to be installed. Usually in a kitchen you don't put flooring underneath the units, therefore you don't need insulation under the cabinets either.
